Everton's defence looked error-prone and vulnerable at times but they locked out Bournemouth and secured a 2-0 win.

Bournemouth dominated the early exchanges with David Brooks at the heart of their fruitless attacks. Brooks himself hit the post whilst Junior Stanislas saw an effort turned away by Pickford from a set piece. Everton almost took the lead just after the interval but Richarlison's shot was blocked on the line by an unsuspecting Nathan Ake. Everton broke the deadlock just after the interval. Gylfi Sigurdsson's corner from the right was cleared as far as Lucas Digne, who beat his man and delivered a cross from the byline which an unmarked Kurt Zouma headed home. The game became scrappy as the Cherries pushed for an unequaliser and their attacks proved their downfall as Everton grabbed a second in injury time through Dominic Calvert Lewin.

Everton looked as though they needed to hit the snooze bar on their alarm clock a couple of extra times this morning, as they put in a rather uninspired performance in front of the home crowd in a 0-1 loss to Leicester City.

Those in attendance for the early kickoff may have wished they stayed under the covers as well, as there was very little fight in the Toffees today. It was as if the side were lulled into a false sense of security, as both sides looked as if they would be happy to play to a low-key draw. Jonjoe Kenny, who got a spot start ahead of Seamus Coleman, provided the biggest chance for either side in the first half, hitting the corner of the post and bar from the edge of the box on twenty minutes. Everton never came closer. While Leicester made a couple of changes at the half and eventually broke through, Marco Silva's side could not find any shot in the arm from their bench. Theo Walcott was summarily jeered during his shift. Definitely a match to forget as soon as possible for the Toffees.

Everton has confirmed that defender Mason Holgate has joined West Bromwich Albion on loan for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old has made five appearances this season, including four starts but has not featured in the Everton lineup since Gameweek 5. After featuring extensively over the last two seasons as an injury replacement, Holgate has struggled to break into the team with new additions to the Everton defense in Yerry Mina, Kurt Zouma and Lucas Digne, and will now get experience in the Championship with third-place West Brom.

Manager Marco Silva reassured Everton fans that midfielder Richarlison was on the bench yesterday due to a combination of fatigue and illness.

The Brazilian attacker still came off the bench to score in Everton's 5-1 rout of Burnley to give him his team-leading ninth goal of the season, but Silva confirmed that Richarlison's workload has concerned him in recent weeks. "He had a difficult week last week, he was sick and then played a difficult game against Tottenham and it wasn't his best performance and we had some problems. I am here to manage his physical condition." Meanwhile Silva confirmed the omission of Cenk Tosun was a technical decision as Dominic Calvert-Lewin got another look up top for the Toffees.

Just a few days after being routed by Tottenham, Everton returned with a 5-1 win of their own against Burnley.

In just the second minute, Everton took a lead they would never give back following Yerry Mina's power header. And within 22 minutes, the Toffees had a 3-0 lead on the road after Lucas Digne's masterful free kick with the left foot and a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty following a Burnley handball in the box. While Burnley were able to claw back for a goal in the 37th, Everton ran away with it following another of Digne's goals from distance in the 71st and Richarlison came off the bench for a stoppage-time goal to finish things off.

Everton were the victim of a Tottenham attack in peak form as the Toffees were blown out of their own stadium in a 2-6 loss.

Early proceedings looked promising enough for Everton, as they traded early jabs with Spurs before breaking through in the 21st minute. Dominic Calvert-Lewin sped down the left and deep into the box before cutting the ball back to Theo Walcott who supplied the one-touch finish. Everton looked for a moment to be 2-0 up minutes later but the goal was disallowed. The game went south for the home side from then on, as the defense would concede three times in each half. Jordan Pickford looked the goat for the first two goals but by the final whistle the bad result had plenty of blame to go around. Gylfi Sigurdsson managed to sneak a goal in during the Tottenham explosion, scoring his seventh of the season via a Richarlison assist. Everton will be more than happy to put this one behind them quickly as they play Burnley on Boxing Day.

Despite looking up to the challenge, Everton were left to struggle at the Etihad in a 3-1 loss to Manchester City.

The Toffees kept up with the reigning Premier League champions with nine shots to their 13, but were far too wasteful to take points off the leaders with only two shots on goal. Even with Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling on the bench, Manchester City pulled away with a 2-0 lead by the 50th minute thanks to two goals from Gabriel Jesus where the Brazilian found himself wide open inside the penalty area. But Everton had a few minutes of hope in the 65th when Lucas Digne launched a cross that found Dominic Calvert-Lewin for a header that cut the lead in half. But in the 66th minute Sterling entered and scored the dagger just three minutes later to leave Everton behind.

Lucas Digne scored his first Everton goal in second half stoppage time to draw Everton level with Watford to close out Week 16.

It looked like Ben Foster's save of Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty was going to prove to be the difference between Macro Silva's old side and his new one. One of Silva's summer signings came to the rescue though as former Barcelona man Lucas Digne scored on a set piece deep into stoppage time. The goal drew Everton even and that final scoreline flattered Everton slightly after they had been outplayed by the visitors for much of the match.

Everton came back from 1-0 down but couldn't find a winner against Newcastle at Goodison Park.

Salomon Rondon finished off a counter-attack to give Newcastle the lead against the run of play during the first half, but The Toffees played their way back into the game. Richarlison eventually equalised, scoring his tenth goal of the season in all competitions. Everton had all the ball but Christian Atsu had the best chances for the visitors, both of which he spurned. Everton remain sixth, level on points with Man United and Bournemouth but ahead on goal difference. Newcastle sit four points above the bottom three.

Everton manager Marco Silva confirmed that he is considering a start for winger Ademola Lookman on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old has shown promise in his two years at the club since joining from Charlton Athletic but has yet to start under Silva. However, with a series of promising appearances off the bench and a crowded schedule in December, Lookman looks to have earned himself a start against Newcsatle on Wednesday. "Ademola is pushing really hard and maybe even has shown he deserves a place in the starting XI. He had a small issue last week and he only trained with our group on Saturday. He did well in the 30 minutes he played against Liverpool and he is more than ready to start. That is a possibility for tomorrow. Not just him – we have not had that much time for recovery since our last match. It is possible I will make some changes to our starting XI."

There was nothing Jordan Pickford could do but apologize to Everton fans following a 1-0 loss to Liverpool.

To be fair, the match-winner was so sublime that it's hard to blame Pickford for the final goal. On the final chance of the evening for Liverpool, defender Virgil van Dijk sliced a shot that looked to balloon out of play, only for Pickford to keep it in by not pushing the ball over for a corner. Instead, the effort hit off the crossbar and down to a waiting Divock Origi for a header and his first goal of the season to make sure the Toffees couldn't break their 18-year winless streak at Anfield. The game only got to the 96th minute because of a groin injury to Idrissa Gueye in stoppage time that kept the game going beyond the allotted four minutes, ruining Pickford's run of two straight clean sheets.

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored early in the second half and it was enough as Everton held Cardiff City at Goodison Park.

The tight scoreline was somewhat flattering to the visitors as the Toffees dominated possessions and chances but could only manage the one goal. Given how the season started, the result is satisfactory but if the Toffees are to push farther up the table they will need to be more clinical with their chances.

Gylfi Sigurdsson will not feature in the UEFA Nations League game against Belgium after limping off at Stamford Bridge.

Marco Silva was fuming following a nasty challenge by Chelsea midfielder Jorginho which left the Iceland international in agony. "Did you see the tackle?" the Everton boss raged. "I hope we don't lose Sigurdsson for the next matches after that tackle. I think he's not in a condition to play for the national team." The Icelandic Football Federation have now confirmed that Sigurdsson will play no part on Thursday, although they remain hopeful he could still feature against Qatar in seven days - he will have a scan this week to determine the extent of his ankle injury. Meanwhile, Everton resume their Premier League campaign on November 24 when Cardiff visit Goodison Park, and if Sigurdsson fails to recover, then Silva has a number of options to consider. One of those would be to drop Richarlison a little deeper, into the number ten role, with Cenk Tosun returning to lead the line.

Chelsea dominated proceedings at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as expected but Everton emerged from the tie with a creditable point after a 0-0 draw.

Yerry Mina made his full Premier League debut in place of Kurt Zouma, who is ineligible to play his parent club. Everton found themselves under a lot of pressure and struggling to create chances, registering just a single shot on target whilst Jordan Pickford was forced into a collection of saves to deny Alonso, Hazard, and Morata. The most worrying thing to emerge from the game is an apparent groin injury for club-record signing Richarlison. The starlet went off in the closing minutes, having overcome pre-match fitness doubts relating to a different injury. From that point of view, the international break may have arrived at a good time for Everton.

Everton could be without their top scorer for Sunday's matchup against Chelsea with Richarlison still struggling.

The Brazilian did not feature in team training on Thursday after sustaining an injury to his foot in a 3-1 win against Brighton last weekend. After scoring six goals in his first nine Premier League games with Everton, including two last weekend, Richarlison looks to be a popular pick for Gameweek 12, but fantasy managers may want to be sure of a backup in case he can't go against Chelsea on Sunday. Said manager Marco Silva: "He is in doubt for the match. Let's see how he will react after the individual work he did this morning. We know he's important for us as a striker and as a winger. If he's not fit there's good options for other players in his position. It's football. The players waiting for their chance have all my confidence."
